Date: Every Thursday evening
Time: Drop-in (play continues from 6:30-9:30 pm)
Location: Montclair Courts, Oakland (Mountain at Colton)
Cost: $2 donation requested
Hot Courts happen every Thursday evening, year-round. Simply stop by anytime between 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. (no partner needed) for some casual and fun doubles tennis.
The exact format varies, but generally consists of four no-ad games followed by a tiebreaker, after which those who had a bye on the previous round are brought in, partners and opponents are switched up, and play begins again.
The cost is only $2.00 per evening, which goes to help defray the costs of court maintenance and repair (nets, windscreens, etc.).
